English Only Policy
About Our English Only Policy
At Vancouver English Centre, we believe that it is important for our students to speak English at all times in our school. Being immersed in an English-speaking environment will give you the opportunity to improve your English skills. This is why we actively enforce an "English Only Policy" on our campus.
We reward students who observe our English Only Policy
If a staff member hears you speaking English outside of class time, they may give you a "green ticket". If you receive a green ticket, please write your name and student number on it and put it in the jar in the Director of Studies’ office (Room #1). Each green ticket is worth one point for your language group. Every day, we will display the language group with the most green tickets/points. On Fridays, there will be a prize draw for the language group with the most green tickets that week. The winning students will receive rewards for speaking English.

The staff member will write your name and student number on a "yellow ticket" and will give the yellow ticket to the Director of Studies.The consequences of receiving Yellow Tickets are:
